1. Wayne will help you get the best price
Wayne can tell if a home is priced too high or too low based on his experience working in the local market.

If you are thinking of selling your home, Wayne will compare your property to those similar in the area and conduct a comparative market analysis to determine a competitive yet fair listing price, ensuring your home isn’t listed too high or low.
2. Wayne will save you time
As a buyer’s agent, Wayne will listen to your needs and preferences to recommend homes that fit your criteria, schedule showings of homes you’re interested in, and create favorable offers that set you above the competition.

He’ll use his expertise to help guide you through offers, weeding out unfavorable terms and providing advice on conditions that benefit you.
3. Wayne can access the MLS
The MLS is an online listing platform that helps connect sellers with potential buyers. MLS listings often contain more information about a home than what you’ll find on third-party listing websites. It’s updated in real-time, so you will always know when a new property has come onto the market. Only licensed real estate experts have access to the MLS, so you won’t be able to see any of these listings if you’re working alone. Wayne understands the benefits of utilizing the MLS and shares this incredibly useful tool with his clients. He’ll keep you updated regularly about any new listings that may show up.

Wayne often hears about new properties before they hit the public market. Since the best homes often sell quickly, Wayne can keep you updated on new properties about to hit the market. You can quickly schedule a showing or plan to attend an open house, allowing you to make a competitive offer before the seller narrows down their choices. If you’re preparing to sell, Wayne will help spread the word about your property so other real estate specialists can share information about your home with their interested clients.
5. Wayne can negotiate on your behalf
Whether you’re a buyer or seller, if you’re interested in navigating the real estate market, odds are you’ll be negotiating offer terms. Depending on the current state of the market and how long the home has been available will determine a lot about whether the seller or buyer has more negotiating power.
